Chlorinated Pesticides, PCBs, and Dioxins in Yakima River Fish in 2006: Data Summary and Comparison to Human Health Criteria
Chlorinated Pesticides, PCBs, and Dioxins in Yakima River Fish in 2006: Data Summary and Comparison to Human Health Criteria (Number of pages: 76) (Publication Size: 383KB)
|Author(s)||Johnson, A., B. Era-Miller, and R. Coots|
|Description||Chlorinated pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and polychlorinated dioxins and furans (PCDDs/PCDFs) were analyzed in resident Yakima River fish collected in 2006.
The survey was conducted to assess progress in meeting Total Maximum Daily Load targets for DDT and dieldrin, verify 303(d) listings for other organochlorine compounds, and provide data to the Washington State Department of Health to update the 1993 fish consumption advisory for the Yakima River.
This report summarizes data on the primary contaminants of concern and compares the results to 303(d) human health criteria for fish consumption. Data are also reported on polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) analyzed on a subset of the samples.
